After a year’s hiatus, the Show & Shine is BACK! So, dust off any cobwebs, polish the chrome, wax and buff the paint on your favorite Mercedes and sign it up for this year’s Annual Regional Show & Shine at Griot’s Garage Store & Events Center located in Tacoma. This is the largest display of Mercedes-Benz owned by MBCA members in the northwest. This event offers People’s Choice voting with awards and trophies, local dealer and vendor displays and door prizes. Non-MBCA members are also welcomed to display their cars, although they will not be eligible for the People’s Choice Awards. Dawg Eats Dog food truck will be available during the event.  We will also be collecting cash donations for our Charity of the Year, Mary Bridge Children’s Helping Hands Fund.
